Welcome to SOLIDARITY STREET GALLERY 2021, our second edition of this one-of-a-kind art and cultural festival along Payne Avenue on the East Side of St. Paul.  This year, our focus is centered on INDIGENEOUS SOVEREIGNTY AND ENVIRONEMNTAL JUSTICE.  The festival brings together artists, performers, poets, entrepreneurs, local businesses, civic leaders, community organizations, neighbors and visitors through curated art exhibits, music & other performance arts, interactive activities for all ages, and an eco-park that highlights local Native sites and environmental innovations. The festival seeks to not only call attention to Native sacred sites, history, and traditions, but also explore modern culture and contemporary identity of Dakota, Ojibway, and other local Native people.

The SOLIDARITY STREET GALLERY 2021 event is family friendly, and free and open to all.  We have something unique, entertaining and educational to offer for everyone.  Please join us!
